Banana Republic card CLI button showing for the first time.
[ Edited ]

I probably checked once a month online to see if the CLI button ever appeared and it always said to call.  Today I was able to input my annual income and was granted an increase.  Is it considered a soft pull?  When I tried to hit the button again, it once again allowed me to input my annual income.  I of course didn't do this a second time but it is curious that it allowed me to request another one back to back.

Since it's GE, it should be a soft pull!

 

What did you start off with and what did you get?

All GE CLIs are SP. 

 

There have been a few threads going around, it started with the walmart card first. I guess they are really bringing back the luv button :smileyvery-happy: 

 

Congrats on your CLI.

Not a big increase at all.  I went from $4600 to $5000 and I have an income well above $50,000.

 

I first started with $1000 when I opened the card a few years back and they steadily increased to $4600 but stayed at that amount for nearly 2 years.
